Catedral Basilica Menor de Nuestra Senora de la Paz, La Paz

(4.1/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Experience an essential part of La Paz history at Catedral Basilica Menor de Nuestra Senora de la Paz, a Roman Catholic cathedral whose original construction dates back to the 17th century. Following a decision in the early 19th century to demolish the original and start again, construction began in 1835 on architect Manuel Sanahuja's neoclassical structure with Baroque elements. It took a full 90 years for the cathedral to open, and even then it remained incomplete until Pope John Paul II's visit in 1989--a full 150 years after its initial construction. Head to the interior to admire the many ornate chadeliers and intricately carved altar.

  • In Latin America, these cathedrals are not very different from other, typical Spanish legacy, worth going once.
